This is an appeal from the summary judgment entered by the district court2  dismissing St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company's claim against Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company for contribution to a settlement.

Having considered the arguments and briefs of the parties and having concluded than an extended opinion would have no precedential value in this diversity case, we affirm the judgment on the basis of the district court's thorough, well-reasoned memorandum opinion. See 8th Cir. Rule 47B.


The HONORABLE STEPHEN M. REASONER, Chief Judge, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, sitting by designation


The Honorable David S. Doty, United States District Judge for the District of Minnesota
